4Cable Failed after about 6 weeks
By California Bill
Started our fine, but signal failed after about 6 weeks and maybe a couple of dozen uses.

I had this connected to an external monitor, and would connect my work laptop or home macbook when I needed a dual monitor setup. At first, I thought the connector wasn't fully engaged in the Mini DP port on the laptop/Mac, but then it just quit linking to the monitor. I tried it on another monitor...same issue. I ended up buying another cable from another brand. Won't be buying from these guys again.

Update-April 4th,2014
After posting my original review, Cable Matters contacted me via e-mail with a very nice letter of apology and offered to replace the cable at no charge, provided I a) returned the defective cable to them in the pre-paid envelope they sent, and; b) consider updating my review here on Amazon.

I think that was a fair request and I appreciate them reaching out to make things right. The replacement cable arrived within a few days, and seems to be working fine. Accordingly, Im updating my review from the original 1 star to 4 stars.

Hopefully, this cable will fare better than the original, but regardless, I am impressed by a supplier that tries to address customer issues, and I have to say Cable Matters did just that. My thanks to them for their efforts.

5Solid connections, solid construction, works well
By John Fenton
I bought this cable to drive a WQHD monitor from my Mac mini (Late 2012) at its native 2560x1440 resolution. The mini Display Port connector plugs firmly in to the Mac. The rugged-feeling cable spans the distance between the monitor and the Mac. The Display Port connector plugs firmly into the monitor. The computer recognizes the monitor. The monitor detects the signal from the computer. The monitor displays a lovely 2560x1440 picture.

The computer is happy. The monitor is happy. I'm happy.

If you buy this cable, maybe you'll be happy too. (Or maybe not. Properly functioning 2560x1440 displays are neither essential to, nor guarantees of, happiness.)

5Recommended!
By Pedro Ferreira
I bought this specifically to connect my Macbook Pro Retina 13'' with my ultra wide Philips Display (298P4QJEB), via hdmi port it doesn't show the full resolution (2560x1080) and also squeeze the image, making impossible to work with, so for my luck the display comes with 2 Display Ports, so i've found that this cable was the better solution and it is, works pretty good to me!
